Greek Salad:

2 Cucumbers
2 Tomatoes (depending on type, if smaller ones (use 3 – 4)
Quarter cup: Oil (Olive oil, different types, I usually use he thickest one)
Red Wine Vinegar: only a cap full.
Feta Cheese (Stores may have this in clear container/ or in white cylindrical container, one block is good enough)
1 Red Onion
Pepper 1 teaspoon
Oregano 2 teaspoons (use the powder oregano, the chopped kind usually has no taste)

*** Do not add salt, the feta cheese is salty enough
*** You can also add lettuce if you like (half a head usually does the trick)

Slice up your tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion (large wedges will help soak up the oil and salt from the Feta), take the block of Feta and crumble it onto the cut veggies, sprinkle in your seasonings ,drop the olive oil in along with vinegar, if possible have the mixture in a bowl that you can close, when you have everything in, close the bowl and shake it up a couple of times to get oil and cheese to mix with veggies.

If you are able to get Pita bread, good to take the bread, slap a little Olive oil on one side of the bread and put it in the oven on 350 for about 5 – 8 minutes, or until the bread becomes golden brown, and a little crispy.
When the veggies are all done, you will have a mix of oil and feta cheese at the bottom, that’s when the pita bread comes in.

Lamb Shanks and Orzo:
2 Lamb shanks
1 Bag of Orzo, small to medium sized, not too big
2 Green Peppers
2 Red Peppers
2 onions
7 – 8 Bay leaves
2 small cans of tomoato paste
1 can/jar of any type of foreign paste in the store you are in. Nothing light, you want one with cumin/basil base.
Oregano
Pepper
Salt
Oil (Olive Oil preferably)
Roasting pan large enough to hold the shanks and the orzo in one pan

Boil the lamb shanks on high. Remove the residue that comes to the top and also stir the shanks so residue is allowed to come to the top.
While that is boiling cut up the onions and peppers into long strips and drop into a frying pan with oil.
Shake some pepper, salt and oregano into the mix until you can smell it.
Only cook this on high for about two minutes and then turn off and let set.
Once there is no more residue in the boiling pot, remove the shanks and put to the side, DO NOT THROUGH OUT THE WATER YOU COOKED THE SHANKS IN.
Cover the shanks in the paste you prefer, not the tomato paste.
Take the veggies you cooked and put into roasting pan, put in the bag of Orzo, throw in all the bay leaves, and then pour the water you cooked the shanks in, into the roasting pan. Add some extra oil, and seasonings.
While you mix up the ingredients in the pan, also add in the tomato paste so that you get a nice red hue to the mix, make sure evenly mixed.
Place the shanks in the pot. Set the shanks into the bottom of the pan and stir the rest all around the meat. The water should cover the shanks half way, if not add more so the Orzo does not stick, and you can always add more water as the Orzo fills the pan.
Place in the oven on 375 – 425 until the orzo has cooked while turning the shanks and mixing all ingredients during the cooking process. You know its done when the Orzo is nice and fat and the house smells like lamb.

Optional: Take one garlic clove, cut into six small slivers. Score the lamb in three different areas per shank and insert slivers into lamb and coat with paste. Some don't like garlic so this part is optional.

Pita Bread

Serves: 8 servings

Ingredients
• 2 teaspoons active dry yeast, from 1 package
• 1 1/4 cups warm water
• 1 tablespoon agave syrup
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
• 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
• 2 tablespoons grape seed oil

Directions

Mix the yeast and the warm water in a large bowl and let sit for 10 minutes. Stir in the agave syrup, salt and flour. Mix until well combined.
Add in the oil and mix by hand or in a food processor for 6 to 8 minutes. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for 90 minutes in a warm, dry place. Dough should double in size.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and if possible, use a baking stone.

Punch the dough down and divide it into 8 pieces. Roll them into balls, then cover and let rest for 20 minutes to let the dough relax.
Dust a clean work surface with flour, and then roll each ball out to 1/8-inch thick and approximately 6 inches in diameter. Cook on baking stone until puffed and starting to brown about 6 minutes each side. Spritz the oven with water, during baking, to create nice crisp pitas.

This is sweet, fast and easy... the trick is to keep cooking until all the liquid is gone and the sugar and cinnamon carmalize on the almonds.

Candied Almonds

Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 15 Minutes Ready In: 35 Minutes
Servings: 8


"This recipe requires only sugar, cinnamon, and water to make a sweet coating for almonds."

Ingredients:
1/2 cup water
1 cup white sugar 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 cups whole almonds

Directions:

1. Combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil; add the almonds.

Cook and stir the mixture until the liquid evaporates and leaves a syrup-like coating on the almonds. (KEEP COOKING until you see it carmalize in the almonds)

Pour the almonds onto a baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Separate almonds using forks. Allow to cool about 15 minutes. If you can wait that longhello1

Here is a Halloween Treat that I can remember doing when I was a kid. I found these recipes on www.101cookbooks.com

Baked Pumpkin Seeds is just like Chili. I have done them plain,salted,buttered,garlic. Try your favorite flavors.

Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
1 egg white
1/4 cup natural cane sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grained sea salt
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the egg white, sugar, cayenne and salt. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss well. Drain off any excess egg white (using a strainer) and place seeds in a single layer across a baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes or until seeds are golden. Sprinkle with a bit more sugar and cayenne pepper when they come out of the oven. Taste and season with more salt if needed.

Makes one cup.

Curried Pumpkin Seeds
1 egg white
2 teaspoon curry powder
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grained sea salt
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the egg white, curry powder and salt. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss well. Drain off any excess egg white (using a strainer) and place seeds in a single layer across a baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes or until seeds are golden. Sprinkle with a bit more curry powder when they come out of the oven. Taste and season with more salt if needed.

Makes one cup.

Black Tea & Butter Pumpkin Seeds
You can use many different types of tea here. I opted for a smoky black one, but you can go for one infused with other flavors, or even tisanes (I have a dried lime tea that I be would be interesting in this recipe). Choose a tea that is fragrant and has a pronounced flavor for best results.

1 teaspoon (black) tea
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
scant 1/2 teaspoon fine grained sea salt
1 cup fresh pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 375.

Using a mortar and pestle or spice grinder, grind the tea into a fine powder. Set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl combine the butter and salt. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss well. Place seeds in a single layer across a baking sheet. Bake for about 12 minutes or until seeds are golden. Sprinkle with the ground tea. Taste and season with more salt if needed.

Makes one cup.

this is not mine but it was very good

Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy


Yield: Makes 6 servings
Ingredients

* 1 large onion, chopped and divided (about 2 cups)
* 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 2 pounds ground beef
* 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
* 1/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
* 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
* 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
* 1 teaspoon salt, divided
* 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
* 1 (8-ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
* 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup dry red wine
* 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth

Preparation

Sauté half of chopped onion in 1 tablespoon hot oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until tender. Add garlic, and sauté 30 seconds. Remove from heat, and let cool.

Combine onion mixture, beef, next 4 ingredients, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Shape into 6 patties.

Cook patties in remaining 2 tablespoons hot oil over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side or until browned. (Do not cook until done.) Remove patties and set aside.

Add remaining half of chopped onion to drippings in skillet, and sauté over medium heat until tender; add mushrooms, and sauté 3 minutes. Whisk in flour, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute; whisk in wine, broth, and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes.

Place patties in a lightly greased baking dish; top evenly with gravy.

Bake, covered, at 350° for 25 minutes or until done.

Note: To reheat, bake, covered, at 350° for 45 minutes or until bubbly.

Instead of whisking in the flour, I browned the flour in the steak fat after removing the patties. Cooking the flour to a nice dark brown and then adding remaining onion and then mushroom to the roux until cooked and then adding broth a little at a time while stirring makes a very nice dark gravy to pour over the steaks. Don't forget to add the remaining salt and pepper. : )

Torture the data long enough and they will confess to anything.

Shrimp Encrusted Tilapia

I just made this tonight and it came out fucking awesome! The tilapia fillets were average sized, and the shrimp I used was around 51-60 per pound, if I recall. Larger or smaller shrimp probably won't make much of a difference.

Ingredients:

Tilipia fillets
Smallish Shrimp
Butter
Olive Oil
Alfredo Sauce
Salt, pepper, garlic
Cajun Seasoning
Parmesan Cheese

Preheat oven to 425F.
Make sure the fish is thawed out, and pat dry.
Thoroughly coat the fish in olive oil.
Place them in an oiled baking pan, and top with salt, pepper, and your favorite Cajun seasonings.
Bake for 8-10 minutes (until the fish just starts to get white and flaky).

While the fish is baking, make your Alfredo sauce ready.

Also while the fish is baking, toss the shrimp in a mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic.
Saute the seasoned shrimp in melted butter to your desired degree of doneness.

Take the fish from the oven.
Sprinkle several shrimp over each fillet.
Spoon some Alfredo sauce over the shrimp and fish.
Top with grated Parmesan cheese.
Place back into the oven and broil for five minutes, or until the toppings start to brown.

Serve with pasta, garlic bread, your favorite steamed veggies, and a crisp, chilled Chardonnay.eat

Roasted garlic Alfredo.

Slice the top off of three to four whole garlic cloves. Place in a foil "boat" with the cut side up and drizzle with olive oil. Put them in your oven on medium until they are brown on top and soft enough to just slide out with a small knife. Remove all the roasted garlic and set aside.

Sautee a finely chopped shallot in plenty of butter over medium heat until they are really soft. Add the garlic in and break it up a bit.

Add two cups or so of cream and salt and pepper to taste. White pepper to keep it looking pretty.

Cook your favorite pasta. Make sure it's not something too small like angel hair, mini shells or something like that. Fettuccine is the best obviously but I like it with medium sized tubes as well.

Once the pasta is cooked, strain it and combine it with the sauce. Add about two cups of grated parmesiano reggiano.. Or less if you don't want it too strong.

Stir it together and you have some great rainy day comfort food.

Pair with chardonnay or whatever your favorite white wine is.

Add frozen peas, some cooked prescuitto and your favorite mushrooms to make it extra good.

Tarragon Tomato Soup with Olive Oil Croutons


For you Lushies living in the northern hemisphere, we practically lived on this throughout winter :)

Ingredients:

2 small onions or 1 large onion (depends how oniony you want it)
2-4 garlic cloves (again depends how garlicky you want it)
1.5kg tomatoes, roughly chopped
2-4 cups salt reduced stock (I use vegetable stock, 1-2 cups to keep it a thicker consistency)
1 bunch tarragon, roughly chopped and extra to serve (use basil, if you can't get tarragon, goes just as well)
1x lemon- grated lemon rind
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
200g ciabatta or french stick or any crusty bread
250g cherry tomatoes, finely chopped to serve

Method:
1. Cook onion first over medium heat until soften then add garlic. Add tomatoes and cooked until collapsed.

2. Add lemon rind, chilli, tarragon and stock, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, bring to the boil and then gently simmer for 30mins, until it reduces slightly.

3. Let the soup rest and preheat oven to 180C fan. roughly tear up bread into small pieces, toss generously in olive oil. Bake until golden. I usually toast the remaining bread as larger pieces to mopped the rest of the soup up.

4. Blend the soup, with a hand held bender. I usually semi- blend it in the pot, leaving some chunky tomato pieces.

5. Ladle soups into bowls. Season and top with croutons, cherry tomatoes and extra tarragon and splash of extra virgin olive oil.

Tastes better the next day. Enjoy! :)

Minister's Delight

1 can (21 oz.) cherry or apple pie filling
1 pkg. (18 1/4 oz) yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Place pie filling in slow cooker.
Combine cake mix and butter. Sprinkle over filling.
Sprinkle nuts on top.
Cover and cook 2-3 hours on low.

Serve in bowls or plain or topped with ice cream or cool whip.

My suggestions:
use 2 cans of any flavor pie filling and any type of nuts that you think would go well with this.

I did the apple pie filling and to me it was like an apple crisp.

Hazlenut & Olive Oil Cake

Super Easy :)

Ingredients:

3 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
3/4 (185ml) extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp Frangelico- (if you don't have the alcohol/don't like it substitute with 1-1 1/2Tbsp vanilla essence, and add slightly more olive oil)
1 cup plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup hazelnut meal
finely grated rind of 1 lemon or orange (I've only tried it with lemon rind, so far)
1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, chopped
pure icing to dust (optional)
thick cream or good quality vanilla icecream to serve (optional)

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan. Grease with olive oil and line base of 20cm springform tin.

2. Beat eggs & sugar until thick and pale. Add oil and frangelico/vanilla essence. Beat until just combined.

3. Sift flour & baking powder into egg mixture. Add hazelnut meal and orange or lemon rind. Use a large spoon to fold in mixture until just combined.

4. Spoon mixture into tin. Scatter over chopped hazelnuts. Bake for 45mins or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

5. Cool in pan. Transfer to serving plate, dust with icing sugar, serve with cream/ ice cream or your favourite tea!

:D

Tip: Using olive oil instead of butter gives a more dense result and faint fruity flavour. Olive oil also has less saturated fat than butter, so it's a little bit better for you :D

2.Drain the spaghetti and return to the pan, off the heat (make sure it IS off the heat or you will cook and scramble the eggs). Add the shallot and egg mixtures and toss together until the pasta is evenly coated. Divide between two bowls then scatter the rest of the Parmesan over, with a grinding of black pepper to serve.

BUFFALO CHICKEN WING DIP
4 chicken breasts (or any kind of boneless chicken meat)
1 bottle blue cheese sauce
1 package cream cheese
1 small bottle Frank's hot sauce (or any other hot sauce)
shredded mozzarella cheese
Boil (or simmer) chicken in water (or optionally, chicken broth) for 30 minutes or until cooked.
Heat oven to 425°F.

In an oven safe dish, spread cream cheese along the bottom. Shred chicken into a separate bowl. Add blue cheese sauce and hot sauce (depending on how hot you'd like it).

Spread chicken mixture over the top and sprinkle with mozzarella (too much cheese will make it hard for dipping).

Cook for 20 minutes or until cheeses becomes bubbly.

Serve with chips or anything that you think goes well!

This stuff is amazing!!! It's always good to bring to parties and such.

This is an easy and yummy meal I made yesterday for my New Years Day visitors. I'm sure you will also like it if you try it.

MEATY DROVER'S SCONE


SCONE DOUGH
120g (4oz) self raising flour
120g (4oz) wholemeal s r flour
30g (1 oz) margarine
water
FILLING
360g (13oz) lean minced beef
1 egg
1 onion, finely diced
1/2 cup celery, finely diced
1/2 cup carrot, finely diced
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 tsp beef stock powder
1 tsp mixed herbs
40g (11/2oz) parmesan cheese, finely grated

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F). Coat a 20cm (8 inch) cake tin with cooking spray.
2. Reserve 1 tbs flour. Sift remaining flour into a bowl, returning husks to bowl. Rub in margarine and mix in sufficient water to form a soft dough.
3. Divide dough into two. Roll out one piece of dough on lightly floured board to fit base of cake tin.
4. Combine mince, egg, onion, celery, carrot, tomato sauce, stock powder and herbs. Place filling in a mound on pastry base leaving a 2cm (almost inch) gap around the edge.
5. Roll second piece of dough slightly larger than base of tin. Brush around the edges of the pastry base with water. Cover filling with second piece of pastry, pressing in place around the edges.
6. Sprinkle top with parmesan. Bake for 1 hour or untill filling is cooked.

The above serves 6.

Great Grandma Gracie's Chop Suey

2 1/2 pounds Round -chopped into bite size

1 med onion sliced thin and quartered

2 c flour

salt, black pepper, granulated garlic

oil

larger paper bag

1 can beef broth

water-

Heat oil in large heavy pot -Put flour in bag add meat and coat well -Place meat and onion in hot oil -Add salt, pepper and garlic and brown completely, the darker the better (you will have to add additional oil as the meat browns- turn only as needed and use metal spatula to scrape the browned flour from the pan, mixing into dish )

-Add broth and separate meat pieces -Add about the same amount of water and mix well (you're looking for a thick gravy texture at this stage)`-Heat through and simmer on low until meat is tender, can take a couple of hours (the thick mixture will burn easily so cook on low and scrape pot periodically) You want a thick texture now because when you add the veggies it thins the dish -Add extra water only if needed

When meat is tender -add to pot-

1- 5.25 oz jar Bead Molasses

1/4 c soy sauce

Heat through on low-and then add

1 sm can of sliced water chestnuts drained

1 med can bean sprouts rinsed well or 2 c fresh washed

2 stalks celery chopped not to thin

Place sprouts, chestnuts and celery on top evenly and cover pot with out stirring so veggies will heat through with out softening to much.

Serve over rice and top with toasted chow mien noodles (toast under broiler for just a moment they will burn quickly)

I believe 'Bead Molasses' is a grade and not a brand of molasses but not sure -this is the secret ingredient : ) it gives sweetness which mixes well with the soy sauce and makes a pretty dark colored suey.

YUM YUM : )

Nigella's Carbonara

Seeing how I wrote about this....

"http://www.lushstories.com/stories/straight-sex/that-first-night.aspx

I'm not entirely ripping this off Nigella :) She's more precise then me....

Put a pot of water onto the boil and add salt until it taste like the sea.

Thinly slice two rashers of bacon or panchetta into think strips, ad put them in the largest frying pan you can find.
Turn the heat up to medium, and let the bacon or panchetta fry until it release their juices.

Half a pack of spaghetti into the water for six minutes, just a little before al dente.

In the mean time, beat two eggs, a handful of grated parmasan cheese, a splash of cream.

Pour yourself a glass of white wine, I like reslings or chardonnays, but whatever you have will do, and splash some into the pan with the bacon and you will have the beautiful reduction of bacony goodness.

When your timer goes off for the pasta, drain it (not too well!)and add it to the bacony pan. Keep some of the pasta water! It's Magic!

Take the whole thing OFF THE HEAT, and in a figure 8 motion with tongs or the stirring equpiment of your choseing, add the egg/cheese/cream mixture into the pasta. It will becone this luscious, creamy sauce that will just cling to the pasta. If the sauce threatens to scramble, add some pasta water.

Generously grate black pepper on top.

Take it back to bed with you, or at least curl up on the couch.

In case you're curious, here is Nigella's (and mine!) inspiration...
